A 58 year old male was under regular care and was pain free but was unable perform shoulder flexion. He presents with 0/5 inhibition of his left lower trapezius stemming from a shoulder dislocation that resulted from a motorcycle injury more than 25 years previously. It did not respond to autogenic facilitation nor did it not show positive TL to any of the AK 5 factors. IRT to the left glenohumeral joint immediately restored the muscle to normal facilitation and he easily raised his arm into the proper position for the lower trap test.
